Fan Art for Assorted Authors

V.E. Schwab, Aleron Kong, and Tamsyn MuirThis page contains fan art for books for which I've only produced a few photos so far, so it doesn't make sense to make a separate page for each book.  Once I complete more scenes for each of these books, the associated photos will be migrated to dedicated pages for each book or author.

At present, this album contains artwork based on the Shades of Magic trilogy (A Darker Shade of Magic, A Gathering of Shadows, and A Conjuring of Light) by Victoria / V.E. Schwab, the Broken Earth trilogy (The Fifth Season, The Obelisk Gate, and The Stone Sky) by N.K. Jemisin, A Lesson in Vengeance by Victoria Lee, and the Chaos Seeds series (The Land) by Aleron Kong.

Spoiler note: this album has no significant plot spoilers.

You can view the files either through the gallery below or the individual image links just below the gallery. Below that, I have included a discussion of the builds and some of the customization involved, followed by copyright and use information. If you're on mobile, the menus are at the bottom of the page.

About these builds

SFF D&D: The nameplates were made using Waterslide decals.  Many of the authors' heads are custom-printed on a digital UV flatbed printer, printed by MinifigFX.  These include V. E. Schwab, Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan, Patrick Rothfuss, Shirtaloon, Scott Lynch, Jim Butcher, Samantha Shannon, Seanan McGuire, Cat Valente, and Heath Miller.  The torsos of Brandon Sanderson and Amanda Joy were similarly printed.  Butcher's staff is from Citizen Brick.

The Fifth Season: The only custom print in this image is Ykka's head, which was UV printed by MinifigFX.  There are two third-party parts: Tonky's scarf is from AreaLight and Tonky's skirt is from LeYiLeBrick.  Ykka's hair piece was not actually ash grey; I modified the image in photoshop since I could not find a suitably-colored official lego element.

Shades of Magic: the only custom items are the four heads, which were UV printed by BrickSanity.  Lila's hair is from a third-party company called LeYiLeBrick.

Target: The custom prints in this image are the heads of Zivon, Robyn, and Lex, which were UV printed by MinifigFX.  Carina's skirt is from Capes4Minifigs, Zivon's robe is from BrickWarriors, Mitalo's belt is from BrickForge, and Mitalo's scarf is from AreaLight.  Zivon and Damari's hair was not actually blue; I modified the image in photoshop since I could not find suitably-colored official lego elements.  Lex and Stephen should actually have more olive-colored skin, but for Lex I forgot that fact until after I had his head printed, and for Stephen I could not find a suitable part in the right color.

A Lesson in Vengeance: The only custom items are the two minifigure torsos, which I based on the artwork by Nicole Deal.  The rest of the build is fairly standard, though I did load the base of each bookend with official lego weights that are normally used in the bottom of boat hulls to keep them upright when floating.

Chaos Seeds (The Land): the two merch girls' torsos were UV printed by BrickSanity; they match a shirt that is sometimes available for purchase on Aleron's website.  Yoshi's swords are from BrickForge, Tabia's jerkin is from BrickWarriors, and Isabella's head is from FireStar Toys.

A Natural History of Dragons: I met Marie Brennan at JordanCon 2021, and she kindly signed the lego signature block shown here.  I haven't had a chance to make any more elaborate Lady Trent fan art yet, but I plan to.
